Police investigate three linked burglaries in Worthing

Sussex Police are investigating a series of linked burglaries in Worthing.
Officers received reports of a break-in occurring at a property in Becket Road on Wednesday June 12, Cotswold Road on Friday June 14 and Bramley Close on Saturday June 22.
All of the burglaries occurred between midday and 2.15pm and cash and jewellery were stolen from each residential property.
The suspects for the burglaries have been described as three white men, believed to be in their late teens or early 20s and driving a dark blue VW Golf.
Investigating officer Jon Berisford, of the Community Investigations Team, said: “The suspects are opportunist thieves as they broke into each of the properties during the middle of the day when they knew there would be fewer witnesses.
“We believe the three incidents are linked due to the similarities in circumstances.
“Their callous actions have caused a lot of distress to the owners, not to mention the emotional stress of having sentimental pieces of jewellery being stolen.
“We are appealing for anyone who noticed any suspicious behaviour in this area around this time or have noticed a group of men in a car matching the description to get in contact with us without delay. You may hold vital information to our investigation and we would like to speak with you.”

Eight arrested after Worthing fight

Police in Worthing are appealing for witnesses following a fight in which three men sustained stab wounds.
Officers arrested eight men after responding to reports of a fight in Heene Road, Worthing, near the junction with Browning Road, at 12.53am on Friday (26 July).
Five men one aged 21, one aged 20 and three aged 18, were arrested at and near an address in Heene Road on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and are currently in custody for interview and further enquiries.
Three other men, one aged 19, one aged 18, and one believed in his early twenties, sustained stab wounds and have been receiving hospital treatment. None of them are in a life-threatening condition. They have also been arrested on suspicion of assaults and on their discharge from hospital will be transferred to police custody for interview.
The assaults are believed to have taken place in the immediate area to which police were first called but nearby streets have also been searched.
Detective Inspector Jason Hazzard of Worthing Investigations, said; "Officers moved swiftly to deal with this situation, locating the victims and ensuring they received treatment, and making arrests. Some areas in surrounding streets were cordoned off for forensic examination.
"The investigation is at an early stage but it is already considered likely that those involved are known to each other."
